Horsham Music Festival huge success

After a break of three years due to county cricket commitments, Horsham Sports Club hosted their annual Music Festival at the club on June 25.

Over 900 people, who braved the early rain, were rewarded by an afternoon and evening of sunshine, and enjoyed a range of well-known hits, from a variety of bands as diverse as the age groups attending the festival.

The whole event was masterminded by HSC events manager, Kim Walton, and Committee Member, Mike Manktelow, with Dave Baxter providing all the technical back up, including sound and staging.

As ever with club fundraising events, a band of willing volunteers worked tirelessly to set up the event and ensure all went smoothly on the day.

This year’s line-up included Double Dare, Saviours of Soul, No Jacket Required, Rule the World, with Mainly Madness headlining the event.

The atmosphere was fantastic throughout and feedback has been excellent. Next year’s event is already pencilled in for June 24 2017

Hungry and thirsty festival goers found plenty to keep them refreshed, with a range of food stalls offering fish and chips, hog roast, burgers and hot dogs, as well as a well-stocked beer tent. And there were no queues for the loos!

HSC is gaining a fine reputation for staging good quality live music, with regular band nights at the club throughout the year –  the next gig is on September 2, when the ever popular Blunter Brothers return.

If music isn’t your thing, then the next big fundraising events are on August 24, when Horsham Cricket Club play a Lashings XI, featuring top ex cricketers from around the world, followed by the annual Fireworks Evening on October 29.
